It isn’t every year that your birthday is celebrated with a turkey dinner and all the rest.
Enjoy your special day. And give my best to Becky.

Clean-cut Timm, so glad to see you with your hair down. I'll always remember how the Southern Belles were jealous of his eyes. His life was a thing of beauty and he'll be missed.

David was my first school-age friend, he being born a month after me and living across the street. Both of us were named Byron along with his father Byron Goodfellow.

David (Dave came later) was a good friend throughout all our public school years. His father was a postman with other special talents, all of which David picked up. For example, they (Byron and David) spent some of their busy spare time rewinding electric motors (contract work of some kind) and David always seemed occupied.

His father eventually became our Liberty Ward Scoutmaster and under his and David's leadership, most Troop Members earned their Eagle rank as Boy Scouts.

During high school, I remember the first time seeing his new girl friend, Nancy Curley, to meet his family (I guess) and I was impressed. They soon married and raised a fine family. The best I can say about David is that he was my lifelong friend and neighbor. Thanks for being there, David!

And you, brother Inkley, were the mission president. Finally some sanity. The last time I saw Dale Ellis was at his State Street store hangout. Those were the days, almost like being back in school. What a guy. He'll be missed.

Here’s a response for those interested in the coming reunion:

Cubs,

With 1,000,000+ American COVID-19 deaths so far, the management of this pandemic certainly deserves to be called a failure:

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/

especially since the following scientific success became available (and has been ignored by the powers that be) as a cure so long ago:

“Hydroxychloroquine cocktail saves lives of high-risk Covid-19 patients - The Palmer Foundation”

https://www.palmerfoundation.com.au/hydroxychloroquine-cocktail-saves-lives-of-high-risk-covid-19-patients/

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0924857920304258?via%3Dihub

Is it really any kind of a mystery that African countries, which sell Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) over the counter (OTC), often to treat malaria, have far fewer COVID-19 deaths per million population than those which promote the use of masks and vaccines as a prevention? Of course not:

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries
?
Why does the White House continue to support the FDA’s so-called experts’ insistence against the use by medical doctors (the real medical scientists) of this life saving low dose HCQ and zinc treatment/cure and not let them sort it out, instead of relying on failed government bureaucrats?

https://www.fda.gov/media/138945/download

And why does America’s Constitutional and legal establishment silently allow all this death by Executive Branch (HHS and FDA) lawmaking by fiat, with barely a peep, while all the unnecessary deaths continue to mount?

Looking at the photographs on Sandra's last prophile, I never would have thunk that she would be the first to leave us. At our ages (79-80 years young) one never knows. After I graduated from Mormonism (the LDS Church), Sandra gave me her testimony of it's mportance to her and I got it. That was her way and we remained on good terms in spite of our diverse life styles and strong disagreements. I'll miss her.

Our first kids just showed up for some candy so my thoughts naturally focused on you. Happy big one and hoping the next 20 will be healthy for you.

RE: "Dear South High Graduates of 1960,

"Our planning committee for the 60th Reunion, August 28, 2020, has met and decided that due to the COVID-19 pandemic we should postpone our reunion.

"We hope that in the near future, with the development of a vaccine, we will feel more comfortable rescheduling the reunion."

Dear Bethany,

Although I won't be attending regardless, due to my health issues, I am disappointed the August 2020 Reunion has been cancelled (or postponed) for safety reasons. Although I am all in favor of taking measures to guarantee the continued good health of '60 South Cubs like you, it is obvious that the national powers that be have again successfully screwed with the public.

There is a cure for the medical issue causing the pandemic:

I sincerely hope you and the other Reunion committee members won't let the Fauci/Trump/Democrats get away with this nonsense. Maybe someone with musical composition skills can write a fight song.

I hope you and yours all remain well

Byron

Even the entertainment industry is getting in on the fun:

Not quite the Mikado or Amahl but, nonetheless entertaining.

What a nice note from a nice lady.

As this "social distancing" (what an awful name for it) moves along, my mind (gray cells) ponder. Here is my latest:

Much has been said about the 100% successful (“At day 6 post-inclusion, 100% of patients treated with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin combination were virologicaly cured”) French drug trial:

https://www.mediterranee-infection.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Hydroxychloroquine_final_DOI_IJAA.pdf

Following the 17 MAR 2020 publication of the now famous French trial, another disastrous trial was done in Brazil which has become almost as infamously renown as the French study became famous. A new (24 APR 2020) online publication of the Brazil Trial is now available containing its details:

https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamanetworkopen/fullarticle/2765270?utm_source=For_The_Media&%3butm_medium=referral&%3butm_campaign=ftm_links&%3butm_term=042420

Among this detailed publication can be found this paragraph from the Brazil Trial sponsors:

“...We were not able to independently assess the toxic role of CQ [Chloroquine] because all patients were already using azithromycin, as per hospital protocol. Official recommendations from China called attention to the nonsimultaneous use of CQ and azithromycin because of potentially synergistic cardiac toxic effects. This combination [Chloroquine and Azithromycin] was also used to treat some patients from Marseille, France, without any concerning safety report [false, the French Trial used Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin, not Chloroquine and Azithromycin, and the amounts in the French Trial were significantly reduced in comparison to the Brazil Trial amounts]. Most patients (89.6%) in our study were also receiving oseltamivir for suspected influenza infection [Oseltamivir (Tamiflu) is an antiviral medication that blocks the actions of influenza virus types A and B in your body. Oseltamivir is used to treat influenza in people 2 weeks of age and older who have had flu symptoms for 2 days or less], which also increases QTc interval and could have adverse cardiac effects. The data presented here refer to patients in whom CQ, azithromycin, and oseltamivir were concomitantly used because of the atypical circumstances of an unknown disease. Further conclusions on synergistic cardiotoxic effects might be possible with ongoing studies’ results worldwide, as soon as they are presented to the scientific community."

Consequently, who knows what further review of the specific details of these two trials will uncover. Correct

Learning of his recent death brings back fond memories. We had many meaningful and delightful conversations; he was always a pleasure to be around whether in a school class or just in public or private. Wally (known also to me as Walter ot Walt) was bound to make the world a better place, which he obviously has. A truly great Cub., at least that's how I'll remember him.
